Founded on a friendship formed at the Yakima Valley hop harvest and inspired by an exciting new hop variety, we’ve brewed up a very special collaboration. Two versions - one brewed at each of our respective breweries - both showcasing a specially selected lot of Yakima Chief’s 2019 Sabro hops fresh from the legendary Perrault Farm, blended with Motueka at Balter and Galaxy at the Garage. Designed with a lighter body, hop character shines through in these refreshingly dry hazy brews, each bursting with their own unique blend of tropical fruits, citrus, tangerine, and coconut. Isn’t it nice when we all get along?
Brewed in Wellington, New Zealand
The Garage Project is Pete Gillespie, Jos Ruffell, and Ian Gillespie.
When we started out we were tiny. Garage Project wasn't even micro brewing… it was a truly nano brewery.
After nine years of working in breweries with equipment 100 times bigger it was quite a change to downsize to a fifty litre brew kit. But what we lacked in size we more than made up for in agility and the ability to experiment.
When you’re brewing on such a small scale you can afford to take risks. That suited us. We wanted to try something new.
Five years have passed and we’ve grown, but that same ethos still shapes how we do things at the Garage. Whether we’re brewing 50 litres or 2000, we’re still here to take some risks, to have a bit of fun and to try something new.
Way back in the day, when we were just starting out, we wrote a little blurb about each other to shed some light on who we are, and what lead us down the path of starting a brewery in Wellington, (if you’ve ever written your own bio, you’ll know how hard it can be!).
